This article summarises the DfE’s guidance on the National Tutoring Programme.
It's a grant to address low attainment and educational inequality
The National Tutoring Programme (NTP) was established to help pupils catch up on learning lost during the pandemic, but the focus is now on the attainment gap more generally.
You’re expected to prioritise disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils to receive the tutoring – but you have the flexibility to decide which pupils need the most support. See more about how to prioritise pupils below.
